History of the Hibernian v Partick Thistle fixture

Hibernian prepare to entertain Partick Thistle at Easter Road Stadium on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Hibees are clearly on top, having won 62 and lost only 16 of the 98 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in May 2003, with Partick Th. inflicting a narrow 2-3 defeat upon the Hibees in a Scottish Premier match.
